I just found this place when at a birthday party, Plaster Galaxy in Brooklyn, NY (Ave. Y) location.
They have a large selection of plaster crafts that can be painted by both kids and adults.
It's great fun for the whole family. When there we saw many families sitting and painting.
They also have Sand Art that could be good for younger kids. Check it out.
